How to Draw a Cartoon Shrimp
Cartoon shrimp or prawn - whichever you prefer... this lesson is all about 'cartoonifying' one of the tastiest sea creatures alive (if of course you do eat seafood!).
At first go, I wanted to make it look more fish-like. It didn't take long to realize though that the key to making it look shrimpish - is in the curvature of its back.
First Step - A Simple Design
Structure-wise, this animal does come off as similar to a fish, with respect to the head/body/tail arrangement. A simple curve like the one below will help you get started with the framework for your shrimp.
Here it is...
Knowing that there are actually many legs - and antennae too!... the orange ones put in place here, will at least help to hold their position before we move into to draw them, ever so creatively!
Second Step - Shrimp Drawing Time!
OK - let's get down to business. Beginning with the eyes, mapped around a 3/4 head tilt - go ahead and gradually bring your sea creature into view - using the steps below of course to help you progress.
Kinda cute don't you think? Perhaps so much you'll reconsider eating one next time around!? ;-)
In the end, a dash of pink and some whispy 'antennae-like' lines, add to the overall uniqueness of your drawing. As you're coloring, try different shades of pink - and add some spots too.
